The New Politics Forum

The New Politics Forum (NPF) is an educational outreach program at the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life that offers a series of conferences, trainings, and events that are strictly nonpartisan, youth-focused, and taught by active political professionals. NPF works to engage young people in the political process by teaching them about our nation's democratic heritage and encouraging them to take leadership roles in their communities.
